Due to rising gasoline and oil prices, the Parliamentary caucus of the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) has submitted a proposal to assist automobile commuters by modifying the personal income tax law.

MSZP proposed to raise the amount of tax rebates for commuters from 15 to 25 Forints per kilometer, as commuting by car has become much more expensive due to the significant increase in fuel prices in recent weeks.

The party noted that fuel prices have risen by some 40% over the past year and that the National Assembly needed to take action on the issue, considering that roughly half of the cost of fuel goes into state coffers in some form. [24.hu]
